We are holding a meeting with the Met Police Counter Terrorism team in Croydon to inform the local community.
Come along to hear the presentation from officers of the Counter Terrorism team in Croydon and to have your questions answered.
Find out what you can do as a citizen to help combat acts of terrorism, how to reporting suspicions and what steps you could take to keep yourself and others safe if caught up in an actual or suspected terrorist incident.
Everyone is welcome to attend this free event. Representatives of groups, organisations and individuals who have links with the wider community are particularly welcome as they can act as conduits for disseminating information and advice. This would also be a useful meeting for young people to attend.

Enter via the gate to the left of the Church.
